For years I’ve read about the Bush government’s sneaky ways of cutting down women’s rights and wondered why no one was paying attention, other than the people at Marie Claire and Glamour.
Now it’s happening here.
This is a very dangerous little bill that they’re trying to pass off as nothing major and the majority are either accepting it or just don’t know what’s going on, because coverage has been sparse. This is one of those issues that has people terrified to take any kind of public stance in fear of offending the wrong people – Kind of like the women who don’t label themselves as feminists because they don’t want to be seen in the wrong light.
I am a feminist and I have added my name to the petition against C-484.
